Fall Centerpiece

So many of you have posted such beautiful photos of how you’re decorating for Fall in your homes, that I was inpsired to go outside and clip some of these branches covered in the cutest little orange berries:

Then I went to “Wally-World” and bought some of these itty bitty limes:

I grabbed a glass pitcher, a white plate and a rattan charger, that all came from Pier One, and came up with this:

It’s Fall, “Layla-Style”. :-)

Not bad for only $3.28 (the price of the limes) huh?

    Okay, you can even make key limes, and branches look amazing and expensive. Seriously, did you acquire this eye for the amazingly chic look or were you born with it. Looks very Pottery Barnish…again.

    That looks awesome Layla!! I copied it for my inspiration folder…hope ya don’t mind. Would like to do something like that maybe next year.

    Another awesome inspiration from you, girl! I love the opposite effect of the lime and orange…just gorgeous. You DO have a great eye.

    HOpe you got my reply email back…

    OH my….that is just sickening…how you can do that stuff….

    I guess I’m going to have to get a higher pedastool to put you on….sigh….. (I have no idea whether I spelled that correctly or not)

    Thanks for the idea…have a great weekend.

    Oh man, I wish we had those orange berry thingies. I’ve seen other people use them, but they must be a southern plant. It’s not something we have here. LOVE the limes with it.

  6. Brenda Kula says

    Oh, I love it! Colorful and natural. I’m a gardening girl, so I appreciate that.

    Hope you don’t mind if I copy. I just saw some orange berry branches at the store. I just love what you came up with. :) Please keep posting some great ideas like this for those of us who are lacking in the creative design gene. I still can’t wait for my new yellow scale to get here.
